the time if you disagree with who is in charge. i think that's particularly dangerous for us to enter into that era, and -- so when i came out and said, a year ago, when president obama tacks a target to my back and he makes a list of eight people, who is supposed to be take attention? just the liberal press is supposed to come out and ruin our reputation which happened. hundreds of article start bid mother jones and followed up with -- they did theirs before the president's list. hundred office articles telling one untruth after another. it was a swarm coming at us. we couldn't swat the flies fast enough. with the enter northwest and all the repetition. then president obama comes out, of course, right before then he commodes out with the list, and then comes the audit. so, when i said who is supposed to be paying attention, just the liberal mess or do we expect the federal agencies to pay attention? are they coming after news is didn't know the answer. i didn't have to wait long. yeah, they're coming. >> neil: do you think these were rogue agents or district heads who decided to look
